The course handbook gives a series of possible written formats that can be used for the written work. Given my choice of subject within the overall theme of Art History, then a traditional essay seems the most appropriate for my work. It is difficult to see how the other possibilities listed in the Course Handbook, e.g. creative writing or career-oriented format, would be suitable.
The essay will consider Japonisme within the context of Orientalism and I will select three or four floral images to analyse both formally and contextually.
I will try to select work from Western artists that operate in different styles and media and will choose floral images by Vincent van Gogh, Odilon Redon, Edna Boies Hopkins and Charles Rennie Mackintosh.
